Kuba, Otake City, Hiroshima Prefecture. On a quiet beach facing the Seto Inland Sea, there is a café called “plus good day.
In early summer, the owner of the café offered to work with our students to repair the building.Heeding our wishes, we agreed to work with the craftsmen and have dinner together.Then, on December 7, a three-part workshop began.
In this workshop, we will repair the mortar-finished exterior walls on the first floor under the guidance of Mr. Nakamura, a carpenter, and Mr. Fujikawa, a plasterer.
With an introduction from an alumnus of our laboratory, a renovation project is underway at the cafe PLUS GOOD DAY in Otake City, Hiroshima Prefecture.
This café, which originated as a community development activity by female members of Otake City, is an iconic spot for community development in Otake City. The building is a 70-year-old old private house.
From October to November, third-year undergraduate students will propose renovation projects in a class called Architecture Seminar II. We recently visited the café to conduct hearings and on-site surveys.
Now, we are looking forward to seeing what kind of project will be proposed.
We borrowed the subject matter of a practical project from Regional General Design and performed a immediate design on a community welfare facility. Specifically, the three groups worked on issues related to the care of people with disabilities and coexistence with people in depopulated areas.
